I did not watch euro last year, but that's not really the point. While I do agree that there is a good chance he will be successful, there is always a small chance that he will not be. Many players have been successful in other leagues, but struggle to translate that success to the nba.

I'm just saying that you're doing him no favours by pumping him up so much, when there's even a small chance that he won't have an immediate impact. That puts a LOT of pressure on a 20 year old kid that hasn't played an NBA game yet.
